What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?


The worst thing about my school is that they preach tolerance and acceptance of every one, but the minute I tell someone my beliefs -such as religious, political, or academic beliefs- I am instantly counted as a bad guy. Good Job, Augsburg.


For me there is not much that i do not like. Probably the most frustrating thing is that here we are on terms and every other school is on semesters so our breaks are always different so its hard for me to hang out with my friends that go to other colleges.

The availability of loans and financial aid is limited, The availability of work study is scarce also.


Not as many events for students to attend. There are some events that happen in the freshman dorms but not as many as other schools have. It would be easier for new/transffering students to meet others if they had little events that occured.

Augsburg College is a small school in the middle of a large city that works hard to reach out and connect to the community surrounding the school. Yet, Augsburg does not always pay attention to connecting the school community, along with the Minneapolis community.

I think Augsburg is a good school, however, being located in Minneapolis, it tends to attract students that live in the suburbs and surrounding areas and therefore "diversity" means African American. I was a transfer student into Augsburg and didn't realize that this would be a problem, but I found it made social interactions on the weekends hard, as many students would go home . Augsburg has a good wrestling program, so it feels like there are a lot of jocks on campus. There really aren't a lot of politically or academically active students.
